Workout Recap - Week of March 3, 2019

March 11, 2019

Normally, the first full week of a new month would mean it's 100 burpee challenge time.  Unfortunately, I felt rather rough at the back end of the week and through the weekend, so I gave that a pass.  On top of that, I was busy enough otherwise during the week to drop down to only four workouts in total.  All in all, things were trending downward, but I'm sure I can push through and get matters righted soon enough.

 

On a more positive note, my unofficial recipe QA tester is back in town, so there's some promise for at least another post of a tasty thing to eat to break up the recap streak.

Sunday

 

Type: Pass/Fail

 

Close Handstand Push Ups - 3 sets of 4 (pass)

T&A Pull Ups - 3 sets of 5, each side (pass)
 

Bonus: 2 sets of 6 half-Aztec push ups, 10 fingertip push ups

 

Honestly, this day was a total blur.  I can't say much about it other than that I did what I did.

 

 

Wednesday

 

Type: Pass/Fail

 

Close Handstand Push Ups - 1 set of 6 (pass)

Stand-to-stand Bridges, one wall touch on the way up - 1 set of 10 (pass)

Hanging V-raises - 1 set of 13 (pass)

 

Bonus: 2 sets of 6 half-Aztec push ups

 

Those close handstand push ups are a lot tougher on the wrists than wider-stance versions.  On the plus side, though, that adds some encouragement to bend over with control for the bridging rather than just dropping backwards and catching myself.

 

Friday

 

Type: As Fast As Possible

 

5 sets of:

5 Pull Ups

10 Push Ups

15 Prisoner Squats

 

Time = 4:45

 

Bonus: 5 handstand push ups

 

As I've said before for this routine, if I'm averaging less than one minute per set, that's a good showing.  Also, as I said in the intro, I wasn't feeling in tip-top shape going into this, hence the conservative set count.

 

Saturday

 

Type: Pass/Fail

 

 

One-armed Push Ups, feet together - 1 set of 10, each side (pass)

T&A Pull Ups - 1 set of 8, each side (pass)

Pistol Squats - 1 set of 10, each side (pass)

 

Bonus: 2 sets of 6 Superman push ups

 

Pared down to a single set though it might be, getting to ten reps of one-armed push ups with my feet together is pretty cool.  I've disappointingly little else to add.
